The parade in St. Petersburg was cancelled because of the American destroyer


The parade in St. Petersburg was cancelled because of the American destroyer
The American destroyer with the Tomahawk rockets which has approached internal waters of Russia on the distance sufficient for potential rocket attack became the reason of sudden withdrawal of the ships of the Baltic Fleet from St. Petersburg. Reports the Fontanka edition about it. The majority of the ships moored at moorings on Neva have left St. Petersburg the day before at sunrise. With the floating mooring on May 6 remained moored only two trawlers and the Zelenodolsk anti-submarine corvette. In Kronstadt where the Leningrad naval base is deployed, on three submarines and the rocket boat "Morshansk" loaded an ammunition. The squadron has gone to the Baltic Sea. By the evening a corvette "Resistant" and the Urengoy anti-submarine corvette have returned and have risen on raid at Kotlin Island. Sources in the Ministry of Defence have only reported that the naval parade on the occasion of the Victory Day won't be held. According to Fontanka, sudden maneuvers are connected with the fact that the American destroyer USS Carney (DDG-64) has entered Gdansk Bay. The officer of Baltic Fleet has explained to the edition that dispersal of the fighting ships in the sea - usual tactics of navy in case of threat of drawing sudden rocket attack. Going on a parade to Neva, the ships always unload an ammunition therefore in the morning on moorings of the Leningrad naval base and "emergency work" was humming in Kronstadt. On the ships and submarines at urgent speed loaded rockets, shells and torpedoes and refueled them fuel. The main shock arms of the American destroyer are made by two starting Idzhis systems on 90 cruise missiles. A part from these rockets can be "Tomahawks", Fontanka believes. At the beginning of April the destroyer Porter, same with Carney, has launched such missiles across Syria. Follows from open sources that on the eve of Carney has taken part in Joint Warrior - the large-scale exercise of NATO passing in April at coast of Britain. On the official page of a destroyer in Facebook on March 3 it was reported that the ship has left hospitable Amsterdam and starts patrol of the European waters for the benefit of national security of the USA. Besides Carney presence, there are also other signs of activity of forces of NATO in the region. On May 3 four ships of alliance have entered the Latvian Liepaja, and at the end of April to the Estonian air base of Emari there have arrived two planes of the fifth generation F-35 A.
